best bare-bones broadband in blighty?

I'm so sorry, "blighty" is a word that I've never, ever used before. But it begins with B, so it just kind of popped out. Anyway: my BT HomeHub 3 is shot - and they won't send me a new one unless I renew my contract. But their prices suck, so I'm looking for a different provider. Any ideas or recommendations? Thanks...

Short-term Internet service in London

I am studying abroad for the semester in London. My flat mates and I are looking for an Internet solution that doesn't require a contract. We picked up a 3G hotspot from Three but it isn't very fast. Is it possible to get actual broadband service without a 12- or 18-month contract?

When something seems too good to be true...

I am looking into an "unlimited" ADSL2 broadband service, offered by TPG in Australia. It seems like an unusually good deal - enough to make me suspicious that there's some kind of hidden catch. I was hoping someone would be able to confirm/refute my doubts. [more inside]

Best 4g broadband deal in Seattle?

4g Wireless broadband in Seattle: I'm considering replacing my Qwest DSL with 4g wireless broadband. (A cable modem solution isn't available in my building.) Also, I think I'd be purchasing the home modem version of the plan upon which I decide. I have plenty of mobile internet with my iPhone. Fast enough to stream netflix is my benchmark. It seems like Sprint is the best deal. What say you? Thanks!

Broadband Card downloading

I have a laptop with a Verizon Broadband Card with a 5G plan allowance a month. I have no idea how far this will go, for example if I download a 2 hour movie off Netflix how much of my 5G would it use? Does it download the movie and then quit using the 5G while I am watching the movie?

How good is mobile broadband for regional areas of Australia?

I'm planning to head to the south coast of NSW (Narooma) for about two weeks or so, to get a bit of work done. However, I do need to access the Internet (mostly google searches). I was thinking of getting a USB mobile broadband dongle from one of the main providers. For instance, I checked with Optus and they say they have good coverage in Narooma. [more inside]
